He's a Steel Town Girl on a Saturday Night

It's aaaallllliiiiivvvvveeee... or something.Welcome, won't you?

There are lots of Mad Science pictures in the MST3K et al. catalog, but I do believe that 1934's Maniac is the first Mad Vaudevillian movie I've ever reviewed. It has naked breasts and eyeball mastication, but doesn't linger on them--good news for viewers who couldn't stand the extended coital retch-fests of The Room. Mike, Bill and Kevin seem fascinated by this hallucinatory specimen of early twentieth century depravity, treating it with equal parts reverence and scorn. Review here.

Also: Drag Me to Hell comes out sometime today.
